Went out this morning,knowing that fog was gonna be a little problem, but managed to make my run with no problems, water was super high and cloudy, I put on a twitch bait that I dressed up a bit was the key to a great day !! Had some big girls that I released to fight another day, lost my fish scale lol , was weighing the first big trout and she shook and I lost my grip on scale she took off with it , my bad oh well gotta buy another one now, I kept some 13-14 inch trout for my lil brother who’s coming down tomorrow. 🧙‍♂️🎣

Wiz,Saw Buddy at 4:00 pm Mass today and he wants to fish soon!!!He and his son struggled mightily on their NArkansas duck trip and I asked if the guide service gave them any consideration for such a poor hunt experience(they each shot one duck)!!!He said nothing was given off,no certificates,taxidermy services,etc and my thinking is the guide service at the least coulda offered some money off his next trip,if there is another return trip and another option coulda been money off taxidermy services!!!If they are struggling in NArkansas,what kinda hope do we have!!!!Probably gonna toss in de towel as far as duck hunting and get after specks like dem,congrats!!!

Yep,sad to say Sportsman Paradise no longer haven for ducks and just think of the tremendous uproar if we had to resort to fishing Texas or Mississippi just to catch specks and reds. What burns me up is it stings to see how deplorable our duck seasons have become.

CCAGuns,Did check SD card on fine azz Browning Strike Force game cam and gotta lotta does and 6 and 8 pt roaming around,no doubt gonna dust off crossbow and hang up waders at least to give me a decent chance at some deer meat.Had one day-time video,12-3 at 8:15 am and nice doe was roaming around.Fishing T-Funky with younger son and Medicare Client on Mon and my client and I are members of same deer club.Saw HUGE set of tracks,most likely the thick-bodied 8 pt caught on game cam and he may slip up during rut.Still got few duck hunts in me and got a Trestles Expert and Causeway Expert dat wanna include me on fishing trip soon,maybe Delacroix or combat-style at Trestles,personally HATE combat-style and love Causeway as much more room to spread out and fishing it slightly more challenging than hitting dem Tracks!!!Thanks for not-so-subtle reminder to chase dem deer!!!
